Texts, tweets, e-mails and phone calls went out around 10 p.m.

It was on. A secret show.

Desaparecidos, whose reunion was announced about 24 hours prior would be taking the stage at Slowdown at 11 p.m. Monday.

Before band's reunion had been announced, they were supposed to play a secret show last week, but it didn't work out. Late Sunday night, the band was announced as the headliner of Maha Music Festival. Excitement was high with Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Paste and others picking up The World-Herald's story about the reunion.

At Slowdown on Monday, a sign on the door said "rock show." Earlier in the evening, the bar hosted a pub quiz and attendees were informed of the show but asked to stay quiet until later.

The crowd grew until 11:17 p.m. when the band— led by Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes and also including Landon Hedges, Matt Baum, Denver Dalley and Ian McElroy—unceremoniously walked onto the tiny front room stage at the venue.
